Splitcoast Tutorial: Faceted Basket

This week's tutorial over on Splitcoast is another sweet little treat holder called a Faceted Basket - this one can either be made with the Pyramid Pals die from Stampin' Up or the template we have as a free download on the tutorial page.

There are 2 variations of the little basket, with and without the handle - both were so much fun to make!

I don't have the SU die, so I used the printable template - if you do this, you might want to print it in a grayscale so the black lines aren't so noticeable inside the basket.

For the additional side pieces, I traced around the side of the basket with the flaps, and just trimmed a tab off each one according to the instructions.

Here's the handled basket - I colored up the daffodils with Copic markers and used a 3rd daffodil image to make the leaves.

This little clutch uses the same instructions, but closes with a little flap adhered to the back side - no handle.

For my  closure I used a tag die from Quickutz, then cut a piece of magnet sheet using the next smaller die.

Here's the inspiration for my projects today - I was so excited to find so many daffodils pushing up today behind our house, and a few already in bloom!

So fun to see little hints of spring like this, and to actually see what's planted in our yard!
Thanks for stopping by!
